romney says big bird's got to go along with jim lehrer. >> does anyone think it's strange that juan is defending pbs? >> i'm not saying. >> that's it for us, thanks for watching, have a great weekend, bye. >> did mitt romney's post debate victory hit a speed bump with the unemployment rate? we'll break down what the numbers mean. this is special report. good evening, i'm bret baier. president obama is hailing the jobs report, showing a drop from 8.1% to 7.8, as a sign the country has come too far to turn back now. his republican challenger says the new numbers are not the sign of a true recovery, in fact, he says they're telling a far different story. the government's household survey says that 873,000 people entered the work force. but the employer survey found 114,000 new jobs created, 10,000 of those in government. so, the difference, about 760,000 are apparently not full-time stable jobs, what's known as the real unemployment mark, the unemployed and those too discouraged to look for work remains unchanged at 14.7%. white house correspondent wendell goler begins our coverage of
panel for the rest of the hour. jim gary, msnbc contributor and former dnc karen finney and the fix it man himself, chris cillizza, psychological barrier, below 8%. all the political scientists that talk about unemployment rates. they're all going to like hey i told you the 13 keys to this and seven keys to this. in all honestly 8% psychological barrier. >> this is the thing is i've already gotten a million e-mails because i wrote something that said this is good news for obama when he needed good news. saying you have to look at the u 6. look, i understand all of those things. i am not saying i am an economist. you know who else is an economist? the average undecided voter. when they look at this they say, wow. it went down under 8%. is it great? no. if you ask president obama on the day he took office, hey, unemployment is going to be 7.8% the month before you have the secret election is that good, bad, or ugly? he would say that's ugly. but it's all context and perception. in my opinion if the trend line looks like it is moving downward obama can now say the trend line is moving
jordan is in baltimore where health officials just released the new details. >> reporter: jim, this is typically used to treat back pain, but now several people have died, one in maryland and one in virginia. doctors here say they've been able to pinpoint a two-month time frame where this injection was distributed and they think they know where it came from. >> we were notified by centers for disease control -- >> reporter: the state department of mental health and hi hygiene say patients are at risk of having meningitis. a facility in massachusetts where the injections were mixed and shipped out. there, doctors believe a fungus contaminated the product. nine facilities received shipments of the questionable steroid injections. >> this case, there were human cases, and it was tracked back to the product. >> reporter: the meningitis outbreak has reached six states with five deaths, but doctors fear the number of those with meningitis may get higher. >> we believe that there are probably hundreds of patients who may have received an injection, and those cases are currently under
is still well above the national average. wolf. >> jim acosta joining us, thanks very much. let's dig deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, this unemployment number, the new number, how important is it to each of these two candidates? >> well, first of all it's got to be a real boost for president obama as jessica was talking about earlier. if not reality, then also a real psychological boost to get below that 8% figure. very important to them. because what it does, wolf, is it plays into the poll numbers that we've already been seeing, which is that people believe that things are getting better. the numbers are still not where the president wants them to be. but if it plays into a sense of optimism in this country, that's very good for the president. but overall you're going to hear the same refrain from both campaigns. the president's going to say that he's added more than 5 million jobs, and mitt romney's going to say there's still 23 million unemployed. >> you've spent a lot of time covering mitt romney. you did that excellent documentary all of
after a strong showing in last night's presidential debate. cnn national political correspondent jim acosta has the latest. jim. >> reporter: wolf, flying to virginia mitt romney will spend much of the day after the first presidential debate up in the air. but for the first time in weeks the state of his campaign is not. mitt romney took his victory lap after the first presidential debate receiving a sustained standing ovation during a surprise visit to a conference of conservatives in denver. >> i saw the president's vision as trickled down government. and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> reporter: it didn't take long after the debate was finished for the romney campaign to turn the spin room into the win room. are you declaring victory, jim, if this was a boxing match, the referee would have called it. after taking some knocks from some in the gop after spending too much time in debate prep and not enough in rally in swing states, the romney campaign felt vindicated. although eric fehrnstrom pushed back on the
this is a moment for jim lehrerer to be very tough, respectful tough, and for president obama to come back at him and to say, look, i'm happy to see -- your running mate said he didn't have enough time on sunday. that's too bad. that's terrible, in fact. i'm willing to cede, governor romney -- >> could jim lehrer get away with simply saying i have a little liberty here, a little leeway, i will give you all the time it takes. tell us now what tax breaks you're going to get rid of. >> tell us what tax breaks you're going goat rid of and also please, governor romney, you were very upset about the 47% of americans who pay no taxes. well, they include seniors, the military, and they include the working poor. please tell me, governor romney, exactly which groups you're going to raise federal incomes taxes on of those three groups because you don't like the fact they're not paying taxes. he's a very wonderful man, a warm man, he could be tough but respectful and i think president obama should help him out by saying i'm happy to cede some of my time so you can take the time and lay out all those deductio

, better quality. i believe in competition. >> jim, if i can just respond very quickly. first of all, every study has shown that medicare has lower administrative costs than private insurance does, which is why seniors are generally pretty happy with it. and private insurers have to make a profit. nothing wrong with that. that's what they do. and so you've got higher administrative costs, plus profit, on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney's proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time, if traditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, then they're stuck. and this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare, substantially, and that's why they were supportive of the approach that we took. one last point i want to make. we do have to lower the cost of health care. not just in medicare -- >> in a minute. >> but overall. >> okay. >> that's a big topic. >> i want to get to it
the election? let's go to jim acosta at the rally in fishersville, virginia. trace adkins, i guess, is going to perform there. they're getting ready for a big, big blowout. >> reporter: that's right, erin. they are blowing this day up. you could say this is a #winningday for the romney campaign. trace adkins is on stage. and we saw the evidence of this all day long from the gop nominee, when he got on board his campaign plane earlier this morning. he was already cruising at a higher altitude, erin, chatting up his campaign staff. there was a smile on his face. and, honestly, erin, i've been covering this campaign for a year and a half. this was one of the happit days that i've seen on the part of this campaign and its staff for some time. but you could tell that things were starting to change during the day, as the president was starting to mount that new offensive, going after mitt romney on his statements last night, calling into question whether or not the gop contender was telling the truth during last night's debate and putting out that new ad that said if we can't trust him on the deba
at the university of denver, moderator jim lehrer will demand the studio audience not boo or hiss or applaud. no distractions, he'll say. so the voters, many, many millions watching from home, will get to concentrate on what these political competitors have to say. more than 60 million americans could watch tonight's debate. >> i've made up my mind. but i'd still like to see both of the candidates sweat a little bit. >> reporter: president obama looked relaxed this week. mitt romney too, but he knows he has to change perceptions tonight. more voters now see romney negatively than see him positively. and that loses elections. >> only two presidential candidates in the last 20 years of "the wall street journal"/nbc polling have had a net negative image at this point and one of them lost, george h.w. bush. and romney needs to improve that dynamic. >> reporter: romney got good news from three battlegrounds. in florida he is now behind by just one point. still way down in ohio. but in virginia, romney is down by just two. with a lot on the line in past debates, romney is doing well. >> going up a
lothian, reporting live from denver this morning. >>> perhaps the bigger loser last night was jim lehrer. the reviews are in and they're not good. some say he blew it, the worst moderator ever. bill keller called lehrer road kill. he could not even level an attack directed at his own network. >> i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs, big bird. i actually like you, too, but i'm not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> cnn political analyst and editorial director of the national journal. hi, ron. >> good morning, carol. >> i know it's not the most important issue of the night. plenty of people actually think lehrer helped mitt romney by allowing him so much time to answer questions. fair? >> i don't know. he has been an important force in presidential debates. last night was not a good night for him. the new format has a lot of strength, allows you to drill down on a subject, providing sustained focus on one area at a time. and he simply did not take advantage of it. he didn't have meaningful follow-ups. he didn't challenge them. he
when jim and netanyahu true and actual redline. on a diagram of a bomb, depicting red lines to be drawn against this program. generating a flood of reaction here at home. leland vittert has details. reporter: this is the first time a leader has threatened and actual military strike against iran. that is a very clear threat on the front page of every newspaper here. conceivably when iran would reach the redline here on the diagram of the bomb at the united nations. however, mr. netanyahu is not repeating universal praise because of what was said here. a little bit making fun of the prime minister for using this diagram. down here they are starting to print cartoons. this one, has a bugs bunny superimposed over the prime minister drawing this diagram. the big question is, what does this mean for israel going forward? has the prime minister committed himself to actually making a strike comes spring of 2013, and more importantly, how is he going to back that up? there are a lot of people that are not convinced that a strike is necessary. a lot of people are saying doing that at the u.n. was
. so, i was fascinated by this other character named jim bell whose even more radical than tim if that's possible. he proposed a system he picked of this idea of untraceable payments and he wanted to create a payment program called assassination politics or anybody can make a nation into a digital debt a pool and the money is used to fund the assassinations of political figures. so a million people over in $5 to kill the president through some -- i'm not advocating this if any secret service agents are in the room -- but immediately there is an untraceable collection of $5 million on the president's head. and jim bell believed he could use this system to destroy the government as we know it. he wrote that with perfect anonymity and secrecy and perfect security, combines the risky proposition to even hold a level of office of the commissioner. so, i exchanged letters with jim bell while he was in prison recently for tax evasion and stalking a federal agent. he got out in march actually and he told me when he was in solitary confinement, he came up with a burly and patent idea for a tele
's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue of national security. and specifically lately on who's a better friend of israel. and there are signs the obama campaign is paying attention. at a military academy in pennsylvania, mitt romney tried to make the case for a new commander in chief. romney once again questioned the president's recent description of events in the middle east as bumps in the road. >> i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what's ahead and is willing to lead. >> reporter: romney's tough talk on iran f
." joining us from the campaign trail, jim acosta with the romney campaign and jessica yellin is in madison, wisconsin with the obama campaign. are the obama campaign at least off the record admitting it was not a good night for the president, putting it mildly. we've heard a lot of spin. do they believe that spin? >> they will say on the record it was not a good night for the president, anderson, yes. they say they will adjust going forward. here's one way they will adjust, i think. you know, the president's biggest asset they believe is his likability, and they want to protect that at all costs but one of the ways they have to do that, it seems they thought was to preserve it by keeping him from going on the attack. that meant he didn't defend his policies enough and that meant that he didn't challenge mitt romney enough. and it came across badly last night. so the challenge for the president is what al gore faced in 2000, where one time he held it back too much, he overcorrected in the second debate and came across as too aggressive, missed the mark both times. the president has to avoid
right here on "mad money," i'm jim cramer. i will see you tomorrow. >>> this morning on "early today," economic divide. how americans are reacting to last night's first presidential debate. >>> out of order. fists fly during a sentencing hearing in a south carolina courtroom. >>> and crowning achievement. detroit third baseman miguel cabrera joins one of major league baseball's most elite groups. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> hello, and good morning. i'm lynn berry, and today we begin with an economic showdown. president obama and mitt romney squared off for the first of three presidential debates last night. in what some are calling a polite war of words, the candidates sparred over job creation, taxes and the future of health care. nbc's tracie potts is in denver for us. she has a preview. good morning to you, tracie. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. the pressure was on for romney to perform, to back up his ideas with details, taking on the man that even republicans called one of the most skilled debaters in modern politics. the point of this debate was to
of the violence in syria spilling over into a broader regional conflict. bbc news reporting. muir inore from jim beirut. this does escalate the potential for more to come. we heard about the attack on the syrian army post. i have seen some suggestion that some syrian soldiers may have been killed in that. do you have the latest? >> i don't have any direct information about casualties among syrians. several soldiers were reported killed near the border where the mortars were fired on wednesday . several soldiers killed. we don't have independent confirmation of that. but it's fairly likely, because the turks said they were using radar to pinpoint the sources of fire that had fired into turkey. the shelling has continued in the early morning, but we don't know whether it will continue. a lot will depend on that. whether the turks keep up the bombardment or whether they will feel their national honor has been satisfied. the other important thing to watch is for any kind of syrian reaction. they have not mention any casualties and their tone so far has been conciliatory, saying there is an investiga

are the facts really. jim angle has a fact check for us live from washington. >>> governor romney's tax plans would reduce rates by 20% across the board. he would keep it deficit neutral by trimming some of the $1.2 trillion year-end tax ducks. president obama argues there aren't enough deductions that only hit the rich so romney would have to hit the middle class. listen to this exchange. >> independent studies looking at this said the only way to meet governor romney's pledge are not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit is by burden evening middle class families, the average middle class family with children would pay about $2,000 more. >> i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower taxes on middle income families. you cite a study. there are six other studies that look to the study you describe and say it's completely wrong. >> reporter: the president is referring to a study by the tax anthropology sent wer which shows which tax deductions to put on the table on which to take off. the first study said it would result in the $2,000 ta
